Research to Practice Briefs

Comparison of Child Maltreatment Data Brief

​​​​The purpose of this policy brief is to review a recent publication in the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice (JPHMP) titled, Child Maltreatment: A Comparison of Wisconsin Children Identified in the Health Care and Child Protective Services (CPS) Records, 2018-2019. This article compares children served by one or both of these agencies. Understanding differences can help inform opportunities for prevention and intervention.​

Positive Childhood Experiences

​Positive Childhood Experiences (PCEs) are experiences in childhood that build a child's sense of belongingness and connection. Although the research on PCEs is still in early stages, the findings are very promising and warrant intentional efforts designed to disseminate understanding of the role of PCEs as well as specific efforts to support the actual development of PCEs among children and youth.​

Primary Prevention Frameworks and Strategies

​This brief represents the strategies and frameworks the Wisconsin Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board uses to guide its work, support programming and system changes.Programs help children and families individually. However, the entire community benefits when systems take a family strengthening approach and address the root causes of family adversities, rather than just the symptoms.​​
